Originally a private house, Surya Samudra is now a charming boutique wellness retreat in Kerala with spectacular views of pristine beaches and the Arabian Sea. Located just 5 miles south of Kovalam, in a quiet private beach location, Surya Samudra is a 22 all suite eco-friendly wellness retreat set in expansive tropical gardens. This delightful little resort is perched high on top of the cliffs overlooking two almost private white sand beaches.
Many of the rooms at Surya Samudra are actually authentic Keralan houses transplanted from their original derelict locations to the hillside that slopes towards the coast. They have heavy wooden doors and window shutters and the interiors are finished in traditional style, with outdoor garden bathrooms. All rooms face the sea to get the full effect of the cooling breezes.
The Rock Garden Classic Suites are Surya Samudra’s entry level rooms, located in the main block without sea views. Only the Rock Garden rooms are available with twin beds. The cottages called Heritage Classic, Heritage Superior and Heritage Premium have sea views. Essentially the better the room, the closer to the sea you get with better views and their top suite is the cliff-front Octagon and Banyan Tree Bungalow which is ideal for honeymooners and has a romantic outdoor bath.
Normally the best route and best value fare is to fly via Dubai to Trivandrum. Transfers from Trivandrum to Surya Samudra are just 30 minutes.
